The princess of a gun-slinging gang named ‘Hello Kitty’ is killed along with her drug kingpin dad during an encounter with the police.
20-year-old Ryan Nazareth Cardozo da Silveira was shot in the head by police in a bloody fight on July 16 and died along with his gangster father.
Police pulled out the father-daughter duo on Friday morning as a family was allegedly taken hostage by a drug gang.
Regarded as one of Rio de Janeiro’s most wanted criminals, Cardozo da Silveira was being sought in connection with armed robberies and murders in the Brazilian capital.
Despite his impeccable surname, Hello Kitty was believed to be the second-in-command of a criminal organization led by his father, Alessandro Luiz Viera Moura.

Police were called to the Complexo do Salguero in the municipality of So Goncalo at around 6 a.m. Friday, amid reports a family was being held against their wishes.
A shootout broke out between the police and the gang members, seeing the neighbors trapped in their homes as they feared a stray bullet.
Cardozo da Silveira was eventually shot along with his father and two other suspects.
Police say Viera Moura controlled the drug trade in Salgueiro, while her 20-year-old daughter handled the day-to-day operations of the operation.
Hello Kitty was famous in Rio’s local nightlife scene and enjoys her wild lifestyle on social media, often sharing photos of herself with guns.
In one of the pictures, she is seen pregnant and caressing her bump. It is not known where her child is.
According to news site G1, Brazilian authorities conducted a similar sting two years ago to capture Cardozo da Silveira and his father, but they managed to dodge the police until the shootout.
In the shocking photographs, the bodies of the couple, along with other gang members, were piled on top of each other in the back of a police van.
